  1. Yes enjoying the Helix, I'm not very good at guitar yet but it's nice to have some nice gear. The Helix takes some dialing in, but it's very easy to use. On the Amplfi problem, are you sure there's no other BT devices conflicting? And have you tried forgetting the connection on your phone and then reconnecting?
  2. I now have a Helix LT, but I still use the Amplfi from time to time to play music back from my Samsung Note 4 to jam too. I'd say 95% of the time it connects no problem at all.
  3. Yeah sInce I've had my LT my guitar playing/practicing as certainly took a nose dive. I've been non stop tweaking and get frustrated about loosing my very limited practice time. But I know once I've got my tones I want all will be good again. I use the laptop now to edit, which is good because there's zero lag or stutter when playing back music through it compared to the BT on the FX which did drop out now and then, but not often. I've also still got a Amplfi if I need a BT fix. There's a massive facebook page for the LT with over 6000 members all really helpful nice people too, that helps with any problems I might come across with the LT. I think if you're happy with your tones with the FX stick with it, and maybe go and have a listen and play with a LT before thinking of swapping, and see if it's for you or not?
  4. ^^^^^^^^ Excellently well put!
  5. Well if I'm honest when I first plugged It in and downloaded a few custom tones, I was disappointed, It didn't sound much better than the Firehawk, well not £500 more difference. But once you get the hang of tweaking ( which I'm not to good at yet ) you can certainly tell the difference, just sounds fuller and richer if that makes sense? Still early days for me yet, but it is very simple to find your way a round the device for sure. I do really miss the Bluetooth function tho of the Firehawk, I don't always have access to the laptop at home, so was handy being able to just use my phone to stream etc. Can't really give much more detail yet as it's still early days.
  6. I just sold my Firehawk FX and now own a Helix LT 😊 The Firehawk is dead for sure,but still a great device as it stands.
  7. This will probably sound silly, I'm a complete noobie to the Helix, but why do you have to get the white text up in brackets per snapshot? Think I've been just turning the nob without pushing it too, then saving per patch.
  8. I've only had my LT a week or so, I'm only a novice at this kind of thing, I have a few Variax patches, and it's froze numerous times. Not good.

    Do these work the same for the Helix LT?
  11. How much sound wise are you finding the FH to the Helix you had,Is it a big step down? I keep gassing for a Helix/LT coming from owning a Firehawk,just the amount of money gives me the shivers.
  12. No unfortunately,but I've now reflashed the fw again, and it seems to be alot better. Or my ears are playing tricks on me. I'll see how it sounds tomorrow. Thanks for your help.
  13. Ok thanks, I'll have another go and make sure the tone knob is up. Thanks everyone for the help.
  14. Thanks for the reply There not to old to be honest,I've had this problem from the off.
  15. Everytime I switch to the models they sound muddy compared to the mags. I've played around with the pots and pups positions in Workbench, they then sound better till I unplug the interface cable and plug the VDI cable back in, then they go muddy again. I'm uploading to the Variax when I've made changes and I can see the valves have changed. But just have the same muddy sound when I unplug everything again. Any Ideas? TIA
  16. That made me chuckle, now they can concentrate back on the Firehawk Fx lol.
  17. That's bad news then, I've got the Firehawk FX, so I suppose it's the same for that then? I like having it all integrated with the FH. Might have to give it a miss then. Thanks for your help.
  18. Brilliant thanks Rewolf48. Will I be missing anything if I flash it with the 1.90 fw? And can I get back if I don't like it?
  19. How do you roll back to 1.9 fw? My Models always sound muddy, so really only use the mags.
  20. I've now got a Firehawk Fx, but will keep the Amplifi in another room to play on. Yes it as it's anoyances, but overall I'm still happy with it.
  21. Does that mean we might get an update at some point?
  22. That's one expensive amp just to play music through tho.
